Not been the best blogger lately...Mmm!

Ok, I'm gonna apologise for my lack of enthusiasm lately. I don't know what it is but I just can't get into the blogging at the minute. Time is pretty short what with Christmas looming etc, and the weather is freezing cold, the days are maybe I have that illness, Seasonal Affective Disorder is it? Or maybe it's just that I can't be bothered with much at the mo! Even my crafting has slowed down (shock, horror)!! Yesterday I spent all day wrapping presents; I usually like doing it but I just found it to be a chore! Bah, humbug! I'm supposed to be doing my Christmas tree later, but I just don't know if I can be harrassed! What a miserable cow I am! So no surprise that my blogging has slipped too!

On a brighter note, I have done a couple of cards. The first was for my MIL's birthday last Friday...

The image is Sugar Nellie, coloured with w/c paints. Rest is from my stash.

The second card was meant to be for a challenge, but I'm so away with the mixer this week I used the sketch from Penny Black Saturday Challenge, with a Sugar Nellie stamp! Never mind, I'll have to do another card with a Penny Black stamp this time! I do like this little fisherman though!

I'm off to make a cuppa now, see if it'll give me some inspiration (I'll need more than a cuppa)...and maybe, just maybe I'll put my Christmas tree up! Take care, and thanks for listening to my moaning lol!

I think so many of us feel exactly the same way Shelly, it's such a busy, stressful time and everyone is under so much pressure. You just blog when you feel like it sweetie.

Love both these cards but the pretty pink one is just darling

hugs Bev x

Hi Shelly, sorry to hear that you're a bit fed up. It's understandable though with everything we have to fit in at this time of year. I'm a bit like you too, I need a kick up the bum!! We'll have to have a mutual cheer up society haha! Enjoy your 'cuppa'. Lots of love, Denise x
